In honour of Lioness legends - and Loughborough alumni - Jill Scott and Karen Carney, our stylish new bar area will be the perfect place to unwind after a hard day's work. It will service our brand new conference and gala space with lunch service, as well as being a fabulous place to kick back and relax in the evenings.

Refurb Restaurant

Fifty The Street

Our fabulous new 140-cover restaurant will be situated in one half of the current courtyard space and will "spill out" into a lovely indoor/outdoor experience. Why "Fifty The Street"? It will be located at the top of the corridor we call the street and will serve a 50% plant-based menu in line with our sustainability goals.

Refurb Thingamijig

Thingumajig room

Brand new meeting space. Set up as boardroom, perfect for small meetings, strategy sessions etc. Fondly named after a valuable optical measuring device from the 1920s (on display in the room) impatiently named by a Loughborough Professor who, when asked by a young student about the name of the device, gave the sharp response "I don't know, call it the thingumajig and don't disturb me again". The optical square adopted this nickname with students ever since who dared not question it!
